Brand and Communications


Unlock the deeper cultural narrative impacting your brand.

Brands don't exist in isolation - we all exist as part of society and we can only understand each other as such. Using semiotics we can interpret cultural signs and symbols, and understand how people construct, communicate and interpret information about our world.

Using experts and AI, we do semiotic analysis at scale, fast.

Our clients look to us to help decode these societal influences and incorporate them into their brand messaging.

By looking more deeply into the unconscious cultural patterns shaping consumer behaviour, brands can generate more successful products, services and campaigns – because they are rooted in lived experiences.

Understanding how consumers’ emotions are influenced by the words and images they see around them helps you understand where your brand sits in the market and the cultural patterns that affect its future.

We combine semiotics and qualitative methods to generate insight and context for a range of activities from brand strategy and planning to creative development. We help you to get the most out of your semiotic storytelling and to connect with your audience on a different level.
